  • Single component with fast rate of cure
  • Easy to apply
  • Can be applied to damp substrates
  • Primerless for most applications (see “Priming”)
  • UV resistant and colour stable
  • Performs as an acoustic sealant
  • Available in a range of colours
  • Environmentally friendly

Nitoseal MS60 may be applied to joints between 5 and 35mm wide. To minimise stress imposed on the joint sealant, all moving joints should be designed to an optimum width to depth ratio of 2:1 with an overriding minimum depth of 5mm for non-porous surfaces and 10mm for porous surfaces. Joint width should be sufficient to ensure the MAF of the sealant is not exceeded.

 

Nitoseal MS60 is suitable for sealing joints in concrete, brickwork, blockwork, perimeter sealing around doors and windows, and non-trafficked floor joints.

Joint surfaces must be clean, dry and free from frost. Remove all dirt, laitance, loose material and foreign matter. Remove all rust, scale and protective lacquers from metal surfaces.
Removal can be achieved by grinding, grit blasting or wire brushing. When resealing, the existing sealant should be removed from the joint and the arris cleaned back to sound, clean concrete. All debris must be removed. Any expansion joint filler must be checked to ensure it is tightly packed and no gaps or voids exist at the base of the sealing slot before positioning a bond breaker.
The use of a bond breaker is not required in expansion joints containing cellular polyethylene joint filler such as Hydrocell or Expandafoam. For construction or contraction joints a bond breaker tape or back-up strip must be used. Where a particularly neat finish is required, mask the face edges of the joint before sealing and remove immediately after tooling is completed.
